Find the Best Criminal Lawyer for your charges.



I was falsely accused of a serious felony, something which I could have gotten life in prison if I was convicted. I consulted many attorneys. I then met and hired Luke Woods and Max Frizalone, serious, experienced trial attorneys. They listened to me, went over the evidence, pointed out all the defenses, investigated and talked to witnesses, and went to bat for me with the judge and the state. They got ALL of my charges dismissed!



These guys are the ones you want to have saved in your phone just incase something were to ever happen. I had contacted the firm two weeks or so after I had gotten myself into a pickle. It's something to be said that I wish I would have had their number the same day.A few words I could describe this company as is tenacious, professional, knowledgeable and above all which you could hope from a firm... loyalty.

I've never encountered an attorney so accessibly and hard working as Mr. Woods. I've texted him as early as 5 am and received an immediate response. He was able to get the case dismissed and is working on having it expunged from my daughter's record. I am grateful for the assistance I've received from Mr. Woods.!

Michael Straughan

Luke Wood, Esq. was very helpful and extremely happy with the service I get from him. I strongly recommend him for my loved ones.



I had max as my lawyer for multiple traffic tickets. Best lawyer I’ve ever had, always called me 2 weeks before the court date. Sometimes I would forget about it and he would remind me. The last one he represented me in he just called me to tell me her paid this 50$ so that the case would be finished with. Didn’t even ask me for the money just eliminated my stress. Would give more then a 5 star review it was a thing.

Mr. Fundz


Great attitude towards his work. Cares about his clients case more than his client. Went out of his way for me today.

Moe Banks


Won’t find a better person that comes even half as close the cost of a lawyer or peace of mind that they are supposed to provide then these two right here.

Bill Mccubbin


He is the greatest lawyer to have he has done everything in his powers and got me off I would have him and his office anytime I need them he works hard for every dollar



While looking for an Attourney, I found Max early in October. I didn't know what to expect during these events and was new to everything. Max was very professional and gave some of the best advice, that at the time it sounded like things I did not want to do. As I got all of the things done that Max told me I should do to help, little did I know it would help me tremendously in the end. I was extremely thankful...



I had found out that I had a warrant on Friday the 14th. Like many of us I didn't know what to do and was also straped for cash. I contacted the court looking to get a lawyer. I told them my situation and I needed to have the warrant recalled as soon as yesterday due to employment and this was on my background. Luke and Max worked with me got the motion fo recall in the courthouse on the 14th the motion to recall was recalled on the 18th. I recommend Frizzwoids LLC 100%...



When my options appeared limited and the likelihood of a satisfactory resolution seemed nigh impossible Mr. Woods was able to secure me a favorable outcome. Mr. Woods calm and empathic demeanor provided relief in a highly stressful situation. Further, my case was handled with great care and professionalism and I highly recommend Mr Woods to anyone in need of legal counsel.



I highly recommend Max, he was professional, honest, and I believe he would not only meet but exceed your expectations. He came through for me when I was charged with a DUI, walking me through every step of the way. His predicted results of my charges were spot on.
